A very hairy moss on a wall on Humphrey Head
You could spend a lifetime studying a hedgerow or a pond.
Roger Deakin Notes from Walnut Tree Farm
A man looking at reality brings his own limitations to the world. If he has strength and energy of mind the tide pool stretches both ways, digs back to electrons and leaps space into the universe and fights out of the moment into non-conceptual time. Then ecology has a synonym which is ALL.
John Steinbeck from Sea of Cortez: a Leisurely Journal of Travel and Research
On one of our walks X-Ray was extolling the virtues of Steinbeck, a writer who has completely eluded my radar. By chance I picked up Cannery Row from readitswapit and loved it. I shall see X-Ray at the weekend. Must tell him.
